From Whole Foods CEO John Mackey, a follow-up to groundbreaking bestseller Conscious Capitalism—revealing what it takes to lead a purpose-driven, sustainable business.
John Mackey is the CEO and cofounder of Whole Foods Market, cofounder of the nonprofit Conscious Capitalism, Inc., and coauthor of Conscious Capitalism. He has devoted his life to selling natural and organic foods and building a better business model.
- “Living proof that we don’t have to choose between purpose and profits.”—Adam Grant, New York Times–bestselling author of Give and Take and Originals, and host of the TED podcast WorkLife
- “In a changing world, businesses that hope to thrive will need leadership to take them there. Conscious Leadership defines a path forward for all of us looking to lead the way.”—Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks
John Mackey started a movement when he founded Whole Foods, bringing natural, organic food to the masses and not only changing the market, but breaking the mold. Now, for the first time, Conscious Leadership closely explores the vision, virtues, and mindset that have informed Mackey’s own leadership journey, providing a roadmap for innovative, value-based leadership—in business and in society.
Conscious Leadership demystifies strategies that have helped Mackey shepherd Whole Foods through four decades of incredible growth and innovation, including its recent sale to Amazon. Each chapter will challenge you to rethink conventional business wisdom through anecdotes, case studies, profiles of conscious leaders, and innovative techniques for self-development, culminating in an empowering call to action for entrepreneurs and trailblazers—to step up as leaders who see beyond the bottom line.
